IIGCC response to EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive

17.06.22

The European Commission published their proposal for a Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive on 23 February 2022, which would require companies to implement due diligence requirements covering the adverse human rights and environmental impact of their own operations, and across the value chain. Certain companies would also be required to adopt plans to ensure their business model and strategy are aligned with 1.5°C.

On 31 May, IIGCC published a position paper setting out our key recommendations to ensure the proposals uphold the objectives of the European Green Deal and foster approaches to climate risks and opportunities that prioritise long-term perspectives over short-term considerations Download the paper below.
